Chia seeds provide complete protein, as well as antioxidants, vitamins, a variety of minerals such as calcium, and are rich, plant based source of omega 3 and omega 6 fatty acids. Chia seeds have a high level of soluble and insoluble fiber, and swell up to 15 times their size when mixed with liquids to create a filling gel that provides long burning fuel as it cleanses digestive system. Because they are so nutrient dense and filling, chia seeds can help reduce cravings. I eat them daily 😉

Serving x 2:

  • 2 Tbs chia seeds
  • 200 ml unsweetened almond milk
  • 1/2 tsp cinnamon powder or raw cacao powder
  • 1 tsp maple syrup or honey

Place chia seeds in a bowl. Blend almond milk, cinnamon (cacao) and maple syrup in a blender until mixed well. Pour over chia seeds and mix well. Let stand for at least 30 minutes before mixing again and serving.

Enjoy!
